Stories of our community involvement
While the team is busy adjudicating the 2023 proposals, we invite you to keep reading as we highlight our First West Foundation grantees from 2022.
Today we bring you The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society and their Etcetera program, a three-time recipient of a $10,000 Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union Community Endowment grant through the First West Foundation.
Etcetera is a once a week, facilitated program for youth aged 11-18 who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+ and their allies. In addition to a diverse and robust offering of services, The Bridge also teams up with the Adolescent Psychiatric Unit at Kelowna General Hospital, partnering with the nurses and social workers to ensure rapid access to gender affirming items and community referrals for youth in a mental health crisis.
“A social worker recently reported that the psychiatrist had noticed what a difference these items were making in the happiness and pride of the youth,” shared Avril Paice, Caregiver Support Program Manager at The Bridge. “It is your funding that makes this kind of community collaboration for vulnerable youth possible. We want you to know what a huge difference your support makes for our local youth,” added Paice.
We are very proud to support the valuable and vital work The Bridge is doing.

Last week, the Kelowna Sunrise Rotary came to visit our Enterprise offices. It was an opportunity to celebrate the more than $112,000 they have donated to our organization over the past 3 years and their amazing volunteer support. Our Leadership team also participated in 'Program Speed Dating', where they had 4 minutes to give an overview of their program to a group of Rotarians.
